This Is Why MLB Players Wear Cups (VIDEO)

Tampa Bay Rays ace David was very fortunate to be wearing a cup on Tuesday night. Minnesota Twins star Joe Mauer laced a line drive that appeared to nail Price in the groin in the fourth inning.

Not only was Price okay, he went on to pitch a complete game as the Rays went on to win 7-3.
